sherku: stir crazy

Love, your smile
Like corn kernels
In hot oil
Keeps me going
Stir crazy


For Dolores, and 35 more years!

Brought gutter
Pissing, puddle
Making, temp
Dropping, jacket
Wearing chill
Then sun

sherku: Summer shower

Thunder rolls
Then the skies
Open, Earth gives
Off that smell
The downspout
Makes bubbles

sherku: metaphor


when thoughts collide
I speak in
Metaphors
Connecting
All the dots
One, two, three


This was incorrectly mentioned in one of my podcasts. At the time I recorded, I added a couple of words, without having the original text in front of me.

one guitar
two violins
three sisters
their voices

harmony

If we only
go so far
floor boards show
wear patterns
snowy drifts
receding waves

racing west
the sunset
paints glory
in patches
changing with
each long curve

good thing these
are seamless
rails can
only imagine
what the old
times were

sherku: two step

his mind is still
working to fix
things which these
days he can
only take apart

point, now this
hand trembles
trying to
hold the frame
